Basecamp Legal (“Basecamp,” “we,” or other applicable first-person pronouns) is providing this Privacy Notice and the Cookie Notice (collectively, the “Notice”) to explain how we collect, use, disclose, safeguard, transfer, access, dispose of, and otherwise process (collectively, “Process”) certain information we collect. For example, this Notice covers:

  • Your communications with us via phone, email, text, and other forms of electronic messages, including interactive chat functions.
  • Personal Information we collect through our website ( (the “Site”);
  • Personal Information we collect when you interact with social media links on our Site and our official accounts on other third-party websites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and X;
  • The services we provide to our clients;
  • Personal Information we collect from our legal colleagues in the course of them representing parties in opposition to our clients;
  • Personal Information we collect when you interact with service providers we work with to offer, provide, and improve our Website and services to our clients.
  • Our marketing activities; and
  • Any offline business interactions you may have with us.

(collectively, the “Service”).

It has always been and remains Basecamp’s policy to comply with the rules of professional conduct which impose a duty to preserve and protect confidential client information on lawyers and their associated personnel. This Notice recognizes our overarching obligations to comply with law, preserve client confidentiality, and represent our clients as effectively as possible within the bounds of the law.

We may provide additional or supplemental privacy notices for specific services or products that we offer at the time of collection. Unless otherwise noted, those supplemental notices should be read together with this Notice. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between this Notice and any supplementary privacy notice, the supplementary privacy notice controls.

For the purposes of this Notice, “Personal Information” is broadly defined to mean information that can identify an individual directly or indirectly through reasonably available information and includes the definitions of “personal information,” “personally identifiable information”, “personal data,” and other analogous terms under applicable data protection laws.

Under the data protection laws, Basecamp determines the purposes for and the means by which some of the Personal Information we collect is Processed, but for most Personal Information provided by our clients, we Process the information on their behalf. When acting in this capacity, generally, our client’s privacy policies and procedures apply. We will handle information, including Personal Information, that we Process in this capacity based on the client’s direction. We encourage you to read the privacy notices of those businesses and exercise any Personal Information rights by contacting them directly.

This Privacy Notice also does not apply to:

  • Websites or services that link to or reference different privacy policies or notices.
  • Personal Information that is collected by any third party. Those third parties have their own privacy practices, and we encourage you to review them, especially by reading any available privacy polices, before providing Personal Information to or through them.
  • Personal Information we collect about employees or job applicants.

Please read this Privacy Notice carefully as it is a legally binding document between Basecamp and you.

Effective Date

This Notice is effective as of the “Last Updated and Effective Date” above and will remain in effect except with respect to any provisions that are changed in the future. Basecamp may make changes to this Notice from time to time and will notify you by posting a revised version on this Site. Changes, modifications, additions, or deletions will be effective immediately upon their posting to the Site or upon you being otherwise notified. You are expected to check this page regularly so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of a revised Notice means that you accept and agree to the changes. We will also revise the date found at the beginning of this Notice when we post changes to it.

Children’s Privacy

Basecamp’s Services are not intended for or directed to minors, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from minors. If you are under 16 (or the age of majority where you live), please do not use the Services or send us any information without our express consent (which we will only grant after we’ve received verifiable consent from your parent or guardian). If we become aware that a minor has provided us with Personal Information without compliant consent under applicable law, we will take steps to comply with any applicable legal requirement related to such information.

That Personal Information will be Processed in accordance with applicable data protection laws and any exceptions to them.

If you submit a request to Basecamp and we are Processing your Personal Information on behalf of another party, we will do our best to route the request to the proper party so long as we have sufficient information to do so on your behalf and doing so would not violate any laws or regulations.

Request Verification

We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and verify your right to make such a request. Applicable law or regulation may allow or require us to refuse to your request.

We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable and doing so would not violate any laws or regulations. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from us to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Consent to Personal Information Transfer

Basecamp is based in the United States. We may Process the Personal Information we collect in a country outside your own, with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as your own.

If you are located outside the United States and choose to use the Services, please note that we transfer information, including Personal Information, to the United States. By submitting your Personal Information or using our Services, you consent to this Processing.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Information will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your Personal Information.

Information Security

We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards designed to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure.

We require service providers to maintain data protections consistent with the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information they are Processing and best practices.  We do not guarantee that our safeguards will always work.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where you have a password for access to certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to take care when providing information that is available to the public, such as reviews or on our social media pages.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to us. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services.

Data Retention

Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, including any applicable rules of professional conduct, we will only retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, as required to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations, or as necessary to resolve disputes. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider applicable legal requirements, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we Process your Personal Information, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
